Bungalow Baby © Andy Townend 1967

Andy wrote this tune in the late 1960s, and he and Chris Cox performed a twin mandolin version on Radio 1's Jimmy Young Show in 1967 or -68. This twin mandolin arrangement is also on the LP (now reissued as CD) 'The Echo Montain Band'. It's a pushy piece, in the unusual (for bluegrass) key of E, but using a wide range of other chords and a 'stop' break (where the other instruments drop out) for line 1/6 (line 1 is the intro - after that the piece repeats on lines 2-6 [we used also to repeat lines 2-3 within this pattern]).
